Nicole Kidman is so happy to share that she has gotten, for the first time in her whole life, at the age of 52….a dog! She shared a photo of herself snuggling up to what looks to be a small poodle. She wrote, “My first puppy. Actually, my first dog. Been waiting my whole life for this! --” In more fur baby news. Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling have welcomed a rescue dog into their family. She posted a photo with their new Fawn Doberman on Instagram. They adopted the dog from a no-kill, rescue organization and shelter in Los Angeles and encouraged others to do the same or to make a donation to no-kill shelters.

As we previously reported, "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'" Dorit Kemsley was dragged into her husband Paul Kemsley’s legal battle over an allegedly unpaid million-dollar loan. Now, according to The Blast, their joint bank account has reportedly been frozen until their court hearing in September. Well, that ought to put a kink in their summer plans. And in more RHOBH news, Lisa Vanderpump has finally put the show behind her. She posted a video on Instagram of herself walking through a doorway, with the caption, “The Pump has left the building. Thank you for all of your support for 9 years.”

“Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory” star Denise Nickerson has passed away. The 62-year-old succumbed to complications from a stroke she had in 2018.

Liam Payne from One Direction is taking part in a nude photo shoot, and the photographer gave fans a sneak peek. In the pic, Liam is sitting in the photog’s chair totally naked, with his butt towards the camera. The photographer captioned it, "get of my chair @liampayne.” Most people wouldn’t enjoy a naked butt in their chair, but this is Liam’s butt, so now that chair has worth.

We told you Amber Portwood was arrested on Friday, July 5, for domestic violence against her boyfriend and baby daddy, Andrew Glennon.

And remember, their baby, James, was in Andrew’s arms during the argument.


Miley Cyrus is mourning the loss of her pet pig, Bubba Sue, a.k.a. Pig Pig. Miley posted on Instagram some photos of Pig Pig and wrote, “Very sad to say… my dear friend Pig Pig has passed away…. I will miss u always. Miley adopted Pig Pig in August 2014 after her dog, Floyd, suddenly died in April.

Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Gretchen Rossi, 40, and husband Slade Smiley, 45, welcomed a baby girl!

It looks like “Lord of the Rings” star Elijah Wood and his girlfriend, Mette-Marie Kongsved, are engaged…and expecting. The two were recently spotted out and about in Los Angeles, and she was sporting a noticeable baby bump. She was also wearing a ring on “that finger.” Although they’ve been allegedly dating since last year, neither of them has spoken about their relationship. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if they have anything to say once their little hobbit is born.

Miley Cyrus performed at the Glastonbury Festival in England earlier this month, and she almost didn’t make it there. Eonline reports that her sister, Brandi, talked about their flight, saying, “Our plane tried to land twice and had to come back up because there were other planes in our way. Out of nowhere, as we're landing, we swoop back up and like bang to the left and turn. It feels crazy." She said everyone was scared, adding, “Miley's in my lap, my mom's holding my hand across the aisle, and nobody is telling us what's going on." She said according to the crew, “somebody was in our lane in the sky and we were going to hit them.” Brandi said that after ten minutes they tried to land again, and the same thing happened. She noted, "It was really crazy. If I didn't have to be the strong person in the group, I would have been scared but my mom and Miley were really losing it. It was pretty insane."

Annette Roque has officially filed for divorce from Matt Lauer after 21 years of marriage. The two separated back in 2017 following the sexual misconduct allegations made against Matt that cost him his job on NBC’s “Today” show. According to TMZ, Ann will end up with $20 million in the settlement, and more than likely some child support for two of their three kids.

Maybe he can star on one of the seasons of “Bachelor.”

The list of the highest paid celebrities has been released, and Taylor Swift is sitting pretty at the top with $185 million. Coming in second is Kylie Jenner ($170 million, followed by her brother-in-law, Kanye West ($150 million). Other notables in the top ten are Ed Sheeran at #5 ($110 million), The Eagles at #8 ($100 million), and Dr. Phil McGraw at #9 ($95 million). For the purposes of this list, the term “celebrities” encompasses actors, musicians, athletes, authors, and… personalities, which to me, is a nice way to say “we have no idea what you’re actually famous for.”
